Our most therapeutic massage.
Our most therapeutic massage, manual lymphatic drainage promotes optimal circulation of the lymph. Lymph is a clear fluid produced by the lymph nodes that performs several vital functions, including cell detoxification, transport of certain fats, and immune system maintenance.
Stimulating lymphatic circulation
While the heart pumps blood through the body in two minutes, lymphatic circulation takes about 48 hours. Without adequate stimulation, the slowness of this process can lead to problems such as water retention, stretch marks, inflammation, migraines, and heaviness in the limbs. The lymphatic drainage can help these conditions. A gentle massage using fingers and palms in precise circular movements, lymphatic drainage stimulates lymph flow throughout the body’s tissues, with special attention focused on relieving obstructed areas. This systematic body cleansing produces a sensation of lightness and vitality, occasionally even during the massage itself.
In tune with your body
Because lymph flows throughout the body, manual lymphatic drainage confers both internal and external benefits, making you both feel and look better. You may never feel so in tune with your body as after this treatment. A gentle massage that is gaining consideration as a therapeutic treatment in its own right, manual lymphatic drainage is only performed at Nordik by massage therapists specially certified in this technique.
